Hello User,

Creatinine is a waste product that is generated when you use your muscles. Eating lots of proteins may also generate small amount of this organic compound. Your bloodstream transports creatinine to your kidneys where your body filters it out through your urine. However, if your kidneys are not working properly then the level of creatinine in your blood may build up.
Creatinine level may also rise due to strenuous exercise or due to some medication. 
The best way to treat the raised level of creatinine is to treat the underlying causes. 
Here are some tips for you -

  • Dehydration can also raise creatinine levels. Fluid intake is also a problem for some people who have kidney issues. So, drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.
  • Lower your salt intake. Diets that include excess salt can contribute to high blood pressure. Processed foods in particular are loaded with sodium and phosphorus which result in renal issues.
  • Avoid smoking. Cigarettes can be harmful in a number of ways including the risk of renal failures. 
  • Limit alcohol consumption. Alcohol consumption has the potential to damage the kidneys. It can also contribute to conditions like alcohol dependency and high blood pressure. 
  • Have a fibrous diet. Include fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and pulses in your diet.
  • Reduce your extra protein intake. Every thing is needed in a certain amount for the body, an excess of that leads to health issues. Similarly, excessive protein intake can increase the creatinine levels, atleast temporarily. 

Thank you
